BD is Alan Hawkins and one of the gifts that God has given me is that Alan is also my friend.
He has contributed his wisdom, his intellect, his humor, and his heart here for a long time.
God has gifted him with large amounts of all the above.
He has challenged us, lifted us, scrapped with us, and loved us.
He is one of our treasures and we celebrate this day and pray for many more to follow.
God bless you my friend.
